### Sample (statistics)

samplesamplesstatistical sample
In statistics, a simple random sample is a subset of individuals (a sample) chosen from a larger set (a population).
Several types of random samples are simple random samples, systematic samples, stratified random samples, and cluster random samples.

### Exchangeable random variables

exchangeabilityexchangeableexchangeable sequence
Sampling done without replacement is no longer independent, but still satisfies exchangeability, hence many results still hold.
Exchangeable sequences of random variables arise in cases of simple random sampling.

### Stratified sampling

If these conditions do not hold, stratified sampling or cluster sampling may be a better choice.
Then simple random sampling or systematic sampling is applied within each stratum.

### Cluster sampling

If these conditions do not hold, stratified sampling or cluster sampling may be a better choice.
In this sampling plan, the total population is divided into these groups (known as clusters) and a simple random sample of the groups is selected.

### Reservoir sampling

Reservoir Sampling with Random Sort
J. Vitter in 1985 proposed reservoir sampling algorithm which is often widely used.
Reservoir sampling is a family of randomized algorithms for choosing a simple random sample without replacement of k items from a population of unknown size n in a single pass over the items.

### Hypergeometric distribution

For a simple random sample without replacement, one obtains a hypergeometric distribution.

### Systematic sampling

systematic methodsystematic random samplingsystematic samples
This process and technique is known as simple random sampling, and should not be confused with systematic random sampling.
This makes systematic sampling functionally similar to simple random sampling (SRS).

### Nonprobability sampling

Probability sampling, or random sampling, is a sampling technique in which the probability of getting any particular sample may be calculated.

### Randomization

Each individual is chosen randomly and entirely by chance, such that each individual has the same probability of being chosen at any stage during the sampling process, and each subset of k individuals has the same probability of being chosen for the sample as any other subset of k individuals.

Monte Carlo methods, or Monte Carlo experiments, are a broad class of computational algorithms that rely on repeated random sampling to obtain numerical results.

### Wikipedia

In 2005, Nature published a peer review comparing 42 hard science articles from Encyclopædia Britannica and Wikipedia and found that Wikipedia's level of accuracy approached that of Britannica, although critics suggested that it might not have fared so well in a similar study of a random sampling of all articles or one focused on social science or contentious social issues.

In the statistical theory of estimation, the German tank problem consists of estimating the maximum of a discrete uniform distribution from sampling without replacement.

Statistical data collection is concerned with the planning of studies, especially with the design of randomized experiments and with the planning of surveys using random sampling.
